Tūtū Tuesdays and Thursdays launch this Thursday, Feb. 7, at Highway Inn, Kaka‘ako! Each month, we will share a new beloved family dish shared with us by a local ‘ohana. February’s dish is Popo’s Slumgallion, a recipe from Ku‘uipo Lorenzo’s family. Ku‘uipo has been a hostess at our Kaka’ako location for four years. Slumgallion is a savory stew created by her popo (grandmother), served with a sweetbread roll.
Tūtū’s Kitchen by Highway Inn shares the food and stories passed down by generations of locals. This exciting program features a rotation of Tūtūs — grandmothers and grandfathers, yes, but also aunties, uncles and anyone who serves as a keeper of a family’s food traditions — who will share and a recipe with the Highway Inn ‘ohana. Each dish will be served for a month at Highway Inn Kaka‘ako.
We are looking for Tūtūs! If you — or someone you know — would be interested in sharing your family’s food traditions with us, please let us know (info@myHighwayInn.com).
A portion of proceeds from the sales of Tūtū’s Kitchen dishes in 2019 will benefit Les Dames d’Escoffier Hawaii, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women in culinary arts professions and educating our community about food.
